4 Library Services SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING COURSE OBJECTIVES How having access to a library can be relevant to your work at SEPT; The wide variety of services the libraries have to offer; How to access library services remotely; How to get an NHS Athens Username and Password; How to access NHS electronic resources. The locations and opening times of the three libraries available to you COURSE OBJECTIVES How having access to a library can be relevant to your work at SEPT; The wide variety of services the libraries have to offer; How to access library services remotely; How to get an NHS Athens Username and Password; How to access NHS electronic resources. The locations and opening times of the three libraries available to you Information Matters! You may think that having access to a library is not that relevant to your work especially if you are non- clinical staff. Many people think that the word library equates with the word boredom! However working for the NHS in any capacity means that you are working in a constantly changing environment, procedures change, equipment changes, policies and guidelines change, management methods change and it is up to you to keep up to date! Our Libraries are for all staff, whatever your role, wherever you work!

5 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING Did you know that…? “To keep up to date... a clinician would need to read for 3 hours 19 minutes per day, 7 days a week... The emphasis on evidence based medicine has highlighted the need to have the best available information at the point of care."Kurup V & Hersey D, The perioperative librarian: luxury or necessity?, Current Opinion in Anaesthesiology, 2007, 20, p585-589 "Research studies suggested that professionally led library services have an impact on health outcomes for patients and may lead to time savings for healthcare professionals."Weightman, A L & Williamson J, The value and impact of information provided through library services for patient care: a systematic review, DARE, 2006. Librarians can be "the access point to, and navigators of the flood of electronic information."Wakeham & Garfield, 2005.

6 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING The Libraries ALL SEPT staff have access to modern multi professional and multidisciplinary library services. Our NHS Libraries are available for ALL members of staff and have material relevant to anyone working in the NHS and social care, from clinicians to administrative staff. There are three NHS libraries available for SEPT staff. Those staff who have just joined SEPT from West or South East Essex Community Services may find it easier to join an NHS healthcare library in their local area. Follow THIS LINK to the East of England Libraries Website for a list of these. Staff may also wish to join and use the services of the Essex Public Health Resource Unit Library based in Witham. Staff working in Essex are advised to join Basildon Healthcare Library, while staff in Luton and Beds are advised to join either The COMET Library or the Bevan Library whichever is most convenient, for work or home. Please take a moment to have a look and bookmark the website of the library which you plan to join. Basildon Healthcare Library(BHL) is based in the Education Centre at Basildon Hospital, at the end of the Main Drive, opposite the SEPT Mental Health Unit. The Bevan Library is based at Bedford Hospital. The library is in a bungalow next door to the Medical Institute (Marked on some maps as the Education Centre). The COMET Library is at Luton and Dunstable Hospital on the first floor of the Centre for Multi professional Education and Training in the main hospital.

The COMET Library is at Luton and Dunstable Hospital on the first floor of the Centre for Multi professional Education and Training in the main hospital.

7 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING A Library on your desktop Although the libraries have physical locations, many of our services are also accessible via your desktop. We are aware that SEPT covers a wide area, with many locations and many staff working in the community. Therefore to try and make your life that little bit easier we provide… Simon Howden/FreeDigitalPhotos.net Access to our services via the SEPT intranet; Library websites with details of our services and links to important and useful resources Online Catalogues to browse, reserve and renew books A wide variety of electronic resources A scanning and emailing or photocopying and posting service, so you can easily get articles from our stock Basildon Healthcare Library also has a courier service, so you can collect and return books to The Taylor Centre, The Lodge, Runwell or The Hawthorne Centre at Rochford Hospital without coming to Basildon.

8 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING Books All three libraries have a wide range of material….over 15000 items in all covering all aspects of healthcare and management and NHS related material. Basildon Healthcare Library ELMS catalogue Bevan Library Catalogue The COMET Library Catalogue You can search, place holds and renew items on all three catalogues when you log in with your library user ID and PIN. You will be given these when you join. You can borrow up to eight books at a time for up to three weeks from BHL and The COMET Library. At the moment the Bevan Library allows up to four books for a period of one month but this may change inline with the other libraries in the near future. However in all libraries some books that are heavily used may only have a one week loan period to meet demand. All books can be renewed as long as no-one else has requested them. Then we will need them back on or before the due date. Most NHS libraries do apply overdue charges if books are returned late. You are also responsible for the cost of replacing a book if you lose it. We also offer access to many electronic books (see Electronic Resources). If you need a book which we don’t have in stock we are usually able to borrow it from another library (see Request Services).

9 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING Journals All three libraries have a wide range of journal titles in stock including many relevant to mental health. Some may be paper/print copies, others electronic. Check on your library’s website for lists of current journals and our archive collections. Titles include; Evidence-based Mental Health Journal of Child Psychotherapy Psychological Medicine All paper/print journals are reference only and cannot be borrowed. We ask that you read them in the library or photocopy/scan articles (in accordance with CLA/NHS copyright agreement). BHL and The COMET Library offer a scanning and emailing service. If we have an article in stock which you want to read but can’t get here, we can scan it and email it to you. The Bevan Library can photocopy and send journal articles from their stock by internal mail. We also offer access to over 2000 electronic journals (see Electronic Resources). If you need an article which we don’t have in stock we are usually able to borrow it from another library (see Request Services

10 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING The importance of NHS Athens Accounts: accessing electronic resources All the NHS online resources that you can get to from our websites including electronic journals are only accessible if you have an NHS Athens user name and password. This allows our systems to recognise that you are NHS staff and give you access. To register… 1.Go to NHS Evidence 2.Click on "Register for NHS Athens" 3.Follow the instructions, fill out the online form and submit 4.You will receive an email which includes account activation instructions 5.You will need to activate your NHS Athens account before you can use the resources. 6.Use an NHS PC for immediate registration; 7.The whole process only takes about takes 2 minutes; 8.All resources are now available on ANY PC, at work or home.

11 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING The search is in many ways similar to those of well-known internet search engines. You enter terms in the search box, and results are returned which contain all the search terms. A feature of NHS Evidence is the use of search filters which appear on the left of the results page with your initial search results. Use these filters to rapidly narrow and refine your search results. You can also search via an A-Z Topic List. This search does NOT include journal articles. For those you need to use the NHS Athens authenticated resources (for NHS staff only) which are also found on the site when you click the Journals and Databases link on the front page. On this page you will find... you will be asked for your NHS Athens user name and password when you click on one of these tabs. Major Healthcare Databases(see next page) A-Z list of all the healthcare journal titles you have access to, (many of which are FULLTEXT) National NHS E-Book collection, the focus of which is mental health. NHS Evidence BNF BNF for Children Royal Colleges Patient Information Major charities, Cochrane Library Care Quality Commission Kings Fund NeLM NICE Clinical Knowledge Summaries NHS Evidence BNF BNF for Children Royal Colleges Patient Information Major charities, Cochrane Library Care Quality Commission Kings Fund NeLM NICE Clinical Knowledge Summaries

12 You can also search the Tables of Contents of around 20,000 current journals in all subjects, not just healthcare, using ZETOC - provided by the British Library. The Sign in to Athens link will take you to MyLibrary, a page where all the individual resources available to you via Athens are listed. These can be searched separately from here but the majority also stream into the healthcare databases and are included in any of your searches there. NHS Evidence www.evidence.nhs.uk is the major website for access to all NHS healthcare resources. It comprises a NEW single portal search engine which is also available to the public. This pulls in material from many accredited and authoritative sources including... SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING

13 NHS Evidence - Healthcare Databases A subject database helps you find what articles have been published on your topic (normally in journals). Not everything on a database will be full text. Access to full text is normally dependent on library and NHS subscriptions, but don’t worry. If you want to read an article that’s not available online just ask your library to request it for you (see Request Service). Databases will give you the following bibliographic information: The author and title of the journal article Journal title Date Volume number Part or issue number Page numbers Summary or abstract of the journal article The databases you have access to via NHS Evidence and NHS Athens cover the broad spectrum of healthcare and each has a particular bias …

The Bevan Library can photocopy and send journal articles from their stock by internal mail.

16 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING Information Skills are Important! In this day and age when we are in danger of drowning in the flood of online information we need to develop the right skills to be able to access and evaluate the best information possible. Yes, we can type a few words into Google and get something fairly reasonable but as NHS staff you need to do more than that. You need to... Be able to create effective search strategies Find relevant quality evidence-based resources Select and evaluate what you read Keep up to date Make efficient use of your time All three libraries offer training in what are called Information Skills (not to be confused with IT skills). Though the format, timing and delivery of the training may vary between libraries, the content will be very similar and focus on the NHS resources you can access with your NHS Athens account. BHL offers three half day courses which run on a regular basis, Finding the Evidence, which looks at getting the most out of Google and how to search the healthcare databases effectively. Keeping up to date which explains what newsfeeds are and how to set them up. We also look at blogs and wikis, Google groups and setting up journal alerts.

17 SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING The Cochrane Library & Critical Appraisal, looking at the importance of evidence based medicine, the role of the Cochrane Library and systematic reviews and how to critically appraise a research paper. BHL can also provide one to one training with a librarian and tailored workshops for specific groups of SEPT staff on request. For details of all BHL training click on the Information Skills Training link on our website. The Bevan Library offers shorter one hour individual or group sessions on Searching the Databases, using the Cochrane Library and NHS Evidence. For details click on the Training& Help with Searching link on the library home page. The Librarian at The COMET Library prefers to engage in bespoke workshops for small groups or one to one sessions. These can either be arranged at the Hospital or at a convenient location for SEPT staff providing IT facilities are available. The content could include searching healthcare databases, getting the most out of Google, keeping up to date, creating alerts and using evidence based resources. Please contact Sally Bartlett to arrange and discuss.

18 Evidence Searching This service, sometimes also called literature searching is provided to answer questions related to patient care, research issues and management. Librarians undertake comprehensive literature searches of a complex nature across several databases to provide good quality evidence-based information to support research, guideline and care pathway development, audit and policy documentation. The results of a search will be a list of bibliographic references which can be emailed to you. If you would like to use this service, please fill out the appropriate online form on your library’s website. BHL users will find this form under the Make a request option on the ELMS catalogue. We regret that we are not able to do full scale searches for undergraduate student members of the libraries as the ability to search for information is seen as an integral part of your career and educational development, but we will give assistance with search techniques where possible and you can come along to our training sessions. Contact your local librarian if you need help. SEPT - MANDATORY TRAINING

19 Copyright Advice The NHS has negotiated a central license with the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) allowing photocopying and scanning of material from books, journals, periodicals and magazines.
